Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, in Rancho Mirage, Cal., has debuted 18 redesigned suites, including two expansive presidential suites, eight luxury suites and eight executive suites.
Boasting lake and golf-course views, the revamped suites feature richly carved woods, crown moldings and attractive French doors that open to outdoor patios. Each suite is outfitted with an elegant living space that includes a variety of plush seating options, 42-inch plasma TVs and expanded wet bars. Bedrooms offer premium mattresses draped in down comforters with luxurious cotton linens, while bathrooms feature slab granite counter tops and millwork cabinetry.
Earlier this year, the 444-room resort unveiled a $35-million makeover, featuring new guestrooms, bluEmber restaurant, R Bar lounge and Splashtopia water playground complete with water slides, lazy river and sandy beach.
